• Zen Sekizawa is a photographer, director and artist living and working in her hometown Los Angeles, CA. She is second generation Angeleno, fourth generation Japanese American, a lover of rap and cats. Her childhood was spent at The Atomic Cafe, a Los Angeles punk rock institution, owned and and operated by her family in Little Tokyo.

    Since earning her BFA in Photography from Art Center College of Design, Zen has developed an extensive roster of clients including Jimmy Choo, Ebay, Google, Sephora, T-mobile, Moon Juice and LD Tuttle.

    In 2014 Hesse Press released her first book, You and I See Why, a collection of images that reflect notes written to herself from 2009–2014. The book addresses the fleeting nature of memory and the inevitable loss of context that occurs when revisiting old ideas. You and I See Why features Los Angeles memorabilia, such as junior high yearbook pages, images of the L.A. Uprising and childhood snapshots from her family’s famous Little Tokyo restaurant, The Atomic Café.

    Recent and ongoing collaborations span various disciplines with people such as artist Mario Correa, musician Angus Andrew of Liars, shoe designer Tiffany Tuttle of LD Tuttle and Niki Nakayama of n/naka Restaurant.
